Interesting to see a green Davidson Chevron vase in The McClung collection photo - I didn't know Davidson had made green Uranium glass

Dave the Monk lamp is from Germany, however I've never been able to get any solid attribution over the years. If you have any info I'd appreciate it if you could post it. Thanks, Ken

I need to look at all of it closer. Best send it over here.  :mrgreen:  I notice some of your members have fallen off the vaseline wagon and joined the dark side with me  :24:  :24:

As for the green Davidson, conventional thinking says no green uranium. But I have a Davidson 714 fruit set that most definitely glows as uranium (and one that does not) and I have just this minute tested it with a Gieger counter. I'm not sure it's really sensitive enough but it seems to above background to me...

JohnPhillip:  the small glass with the opalescent rings:  I also thought it was a James or Harry Powell.  However, what confused me is that there is two concentric rings on the foot......and, the owner of it showed me that it is marked Tiffany and is also shown in a Tiffany book somewhere.  Fox is very knowledgeable about her cordials/small stems.   I looked at it very closely, and the stem portion is a perfect rod with no differentiation in diameter from top to bottom.  almost like it was taken from glass rod stock and cut to the right size, then installed between the bowl and foot.  Sorry, but I don't have a better photo of it.  I could ask the owner to provide a better photo if you want one.

It must be a clone  although i read somewhere Powell and Tiffany collaborated on some drinking glasses. :-[
